Sassy and Silly
with lots to say and do
our sweet little cupcake
is already turning two!
Ella's birthday party was Sunday Afternoon, July 29, 2007, 2 pm to 4 pm, a little girl's tea party! The cute pink with green polka dot invitation was designed and made by Ella's mom, Angie. Our creative daughter, Angie, loves to design and make cards, decorate and put together precious keepsakes for the girls attending to take home as a remembrance of the affair. Ever party starts with the invitation! Angie used pink, green and purple as the color scheme. Adept at the computer, she made the paper, penned the poem and put it all together with a darling bow.
Next came the food for the cupcake party. What better to have than "cupcakes" with cookies, finger sandwiches and fruit. Lime sherbet and ginger ale made a lovely pale green refreshing punch to go with the dainty finger food.
The tables had purple with white polka dot table clothes and the chairs were covered with pink satin and secured by a pretty green ribbon and bow adorned with lavender, pink and purple flowers. Pink. green, and purple straw hats along with each little girls name plate decorated the table. A cute ceramic tea pot with balloons were the center piece of two little girl tables and one big girl table. In each chair was a colorful boa to play dress up with. Upon arrival the girls got to decorate their straw hats with ribbons, bows and flowers with the help of their mothers. After eating the delicious finger food and play it was on to the presents and a happy ending to the afternoon tea party.
Each little girl received a small pink and purple basket decorated with green and white polka dot ribbon and a bow on top made by Angie with a miniature clay cup cake in the center of the bow made by me, Ella's Grammy. The pretty basket contained a pink heart cookie baked and decorated by Angie, bracelets, a sucker, a small jar of pink finger nail polish, a cute pen and note pad and some lip balm. Everyone had a ball at the "Cupcake Tea Party" in honor of Ella's second birthday!
We hope you enjoyed viewing the tea party as much as Angie, with Grammy and Ella's assistance, enjoyed putting it all together.
